Did you ever try to wash your bread in a coffee before eating???

"pandesal" - This is the kind of bread we usually eat at breakfast.

I know It is sound so weird to you guys but for me and I know some of the Filipinos really love it too... Hey Filipinos admit it.....hehehe It is like oreo cookies (do you saw the tv commercial of oreo) but it is not biscuit this is a kind of bread here in my country that what we called "pandesal" and we usually eat it for breakfast. It is like "tear it, dunk it and eat it". We dunk it in the coffee even it has a stuffing or no stuffing before eating it. Specially if the bread is crispy and hot uhmm delicious. Actually I done it today when I'm taking breakfast with my coffee and I want to share it with you so if you like to try you will never regret it.

When i was small around elementary, we put coffee on our rice because we are an ordinary family and just making both ends meet that was our breakfast, and as time goes by we used to eat like that. Now we are able to buy bread since all of us has own family n, thanks god we survived that. It good to drink coffee with pandesal, some people said that we are too clean after we wash the bread from the coffee we drink it.I like coffee with milk, did you ever tried to drink cold coffee, well its ok but i prefer hot.

I thought i'm the only one. i live in US and i'm not filipino, but there was a Filipino store near my house back 4 years ago. i always got those fresh pandisal, and deep it in a coffee. By the way i love the Puto cake that they sell with the cheese fill in.

dunking mini donuts -  we dunk donuts in coffee
Here in the United States some people will dunk or as you say wash donuts in their coffee. I have done this if the donut is a little stale. Dunking a donut will soften it and make it more palatable. I have even dunked toast in my coffee. Also dunked toast into hot chocolate. Ummmm. I don't think that we can get pandesal in my area.

hi lyn, its quite common in India as well. bread with tea is very popular among commoners. ppl would grab big chunk of bread and dip it in tea and enjoy the soft, sweetish taste. in my country ppl have homemade bread (called roti, parantha) and make rolls and dip it in tea and relish it. smiles...

HEY that sounds cool food to me. Howerver in India most of the people enjoy washing their biscuits with tea or coffee and then eating it. Offcourse a lot of time the biscuit is too soggy and out of control and falls down all around the place. hahahahahaha

Hi there. If your talking about, dipping your bread into a cup of coffee, then Im familiar with this, it is a bit weird but it tastes nice at the same time, in some freaky way lol "soggy bread" is also filling...

Pan de sal - FilipinoTraditional Bread - Pan de sal- Crispy and delicious dinner rolls from the Philippines. Most coomon way to eat it isby dipping it into a hot coffee or chocolate.
I think it's not only SOME but MOST of the Filipinos do the dunking of 'pan de sal'in a cup of coffee or hot chocolate in the mornings. You may call it already a tradition of eating the 'pan de sal' in a Filipino way. The Oreo adverstisement lately may have gotten the idea from the Filipinos, I supposed. It's a really yummy experience having the Filipino 'salted bread' dipped into hot coffee or chocolate. So creamy, delicious and fulfilling!!

Maybe your right about that the oreo commercial got it from the filipino way of eating bread, hehehe, thanks for sharing.

I have done it before. The bread would become tasty but I think it sucks out the sugar from the coffee. When you drink the coffee afterwards, it tastes like there is no more sugar.

Well maybe not exactly, but there are lots of things that i put in my coffee like italian cookies called tarallies which get soft and chewey after the have been it coffee. They are really good and I think everyone should try them. It's too bad they require so much work to make.

Growing up in Finland, I would always dip a certain bread called "skorpa" (Swedish) into coffe with milk. It was yummy with lots of butter and honey on top, which the hot coffee would melt into the bread - and the bread would soften. Reminds me of going to my grandparents house... Sadly I can't get "skorpor" (plural) here in the US, and I am not motivated to attempt to make them since I know they will not be as good.

oh why, such a perfect discussion to describe what i am doing right now i between mylot postings. hahahha! I do not know when did i develop this habit of duking my bread or cookie in actually almost any drinks , be it juice, coffee, milk or tea. oh even water sometimes! I was 12 years old when i discovered bread tasted sweeter when dunk in water. Back in college days, every after school my friends and i would always go to this cafe and have bread and cola. At first they laughed at me everytime i do the dunking and would stop eating just to watch me enjoy my soften bread, and drink my cola in a glass. After sometime, they joined me in dunking, it was crazy. I am drinking a hot coffee with milk and i have some bread without fillings. it's my midnight snack. Want some?

Oooohh, sounds yummy~!! I've never tried a pandesal before but I do dunk almost anything in my coffee~! Especially any type of fried bread with black bean filling, or any type of filling for that matter! Hmmm.. suddenly I feel like having 'cakui'. That's what we Malaysians love to dunk in our coffee!! Hehe..
